Domaine de Grange Neuve Monbazillac 2011 - 50 cl

 

Tasting Note

A fabulous dessert wine, sweet and luscious with a great backbone of fine acidity for a clean finish. The nose is fresh with classic botrytis marmalade and ripe nectarine and melon. Flavours on the palate are richer, honey and toffee finishing with a twist of bitter orange.

Producer Details

The vineyard of Domaine de Grange Neuve is close to the town of Pomport near Bergerac in the heart of Périgord. The vineyards are on the slopes of the valley of the Dordogne at an altitude of between 50 and 180 metres. Belonging to the Pichon and Castaing family - the winery has grown from a small farm with just 4 hectares of vines in 1898 to a vineyard of 70 hectares today. Dedicated to making wine that respects tradition whilst not neglecting technological advances both in the cultivation of vines and in winemaking techniques, today the property is still run by three generations of this family. The vineyard consists of approximately 26 hectares of red grape vines (Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon), and 44 hectares of white (Sémillon, Muscadelle and Sauvignon Blanc) - the average age of the vines is 25 years.

In The Vineyard

Vineyards are based in the heart of Perigord, near Bergerac along the valley of the Dordogne river. Here, on the river slopes there is a particular microclimate which favours the development of the botrytis necessary to make this style of sweet wine. Vines average 25 years of age. As in Sauternes, grapes are hand harvested at a very late stage of maturity, in three successive 'triage', to ensure that only the most mature grapes are picked. Grapes are harvested in October and November.

In The Winery

Grapes are gently put into a pneumatic press and the juice is transfered to temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation the wine is matured for 24 months.

Food Recommendations

The French would serve this as an aperitif but it is also good with paté or blue cheeses such as Roquefort.
